Medium: Charcoal / acrylic & Aerosol

Reality bites as this young boy stares blankly through you. Seeing nothing, yet having seen everything, he has possibly witnessed more in his short life than any human should have to. Millions exactly like him have lost both parents and often grandparents due to HIV-Aids, TB, the harsh economic climate, and urbanization. The full weight of survival and caring for younger siblings has fallen on him if in fact, he is lucky enough not to be completely alone.
